Border Patrol Chase Ends in Crash

Seven people were taken into custody following a chase in the South Bay involving U.S. Border Patrol agents ended in a rollover crash.  There are reports that four people were hospitalized.

The pursuit began at about 11:45 p.m. when Border Patrol agents tried to pull over a red SUV on northbound state Route 125 near Otay Mesa Road, according to authorities. However, the SUV fled from agents, prompting a pursuit.

The chase ended minutes later when the SUV tried to turn onto an access road but struck a guardrail.  The collision sent the SUV rolling down an embankment before it came to rest in a riverbed. Authorities said seven people were thrown from the SUV during the rollover crash. 

The seven people were taken into custody. Authorities at the scene said it is believed the detainees were undocumented immigrants, but their status would be confirmed later in the day.
